Two of our members, Doug Hanna and Dave Collins, initiated the planting of two trees at the cemetery  to commemorate the passing of Queen Elizabeth and the Coronation of King Charles. Meghan Hunter, manager, Parks and Forestry with two of her staff, Mackenzie Sheppard and Mitchell Blackman, determined the location and dug the holes. 

The two pin oaks are located near the chapel and are marked with plaques.

A plaque was placed by each tree.


The pin oak is commonly used in landscapes in its native range due to its ease of transplanting,

its relatively fast growth, its fall colour and winter interest, dense shade and its polution tolerance.
